“these little guys were a big hit with my grandchildren. they were very easy to make, which was a good thing because all the kids wanted some. I did make a change and used fabric paint in glossy black for the eyes because I ran out of the safety eyes and it worked very well. I hope there are more varieties to come.”
The felt veggie softies are fun and simple to make! They are stitched entirely by hand, using a whip stitch around the felt edges and a stem stitch for the mouths. The finished softies are different sizes, ranging from 3” x 3” for the tomato and mushroom, to 2” x 5.5” for the carrot. They are made from scraps of felt. Enlarge or reduce patterns to make the softies different sizes. They would make an adorable hanging mobile. Safety eyes are used for samples – other options for the eyes, are to make them using embroidery, paint or felt.
This 5 page PDF sewing e-pattern includes full size patterns to make six veggie softies – beet, broccoli, carrot, eggplant, mushroom & tomato; a materials list; detailed instructions written in English; and clear step-by-step photos.
